The Anambra governorship debate organised by Arise TV turned messy with the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Prof. Chukwuma Soludo saying candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Andy Uba was a domestic staff to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
During the debate, Soludo and Uba has a hot exchange with got the internet buzzing.
Soludo had claimed that Uba didn’t bring development to his people as a senator.
An angry Uba replied that he mentioned Soludo’s name for the position of governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to Obasanjo.
“You were saying that in my eight years in the senate I did not do anything. What did you do? I mentioned you as the central bank governor. What have you done so far?” the APC candidate asked.
“You haven’t done anything. They brought you to me. My brother brought you. How can you say what you don’t know?”, Uba asked.
Quick to respond, the former CBN governor accused the APC candidate of forging his senior secondary school certificate which was presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“You don’t have a certificate. You forged it. I will show you here. Do you have a secondary school certificate?” Soludo queried.
“When did you graduate? You have a secondary certificate in 1974? You had SSCE in Enugu? It is a forgery! Your history is here. I can show it to you from INEC”, he said.
Responding to Uba’s comment on the CBN job, Soludo said the APC candidate was not instrumental to his emergence as CBN governor, adding that Uba was a domestic staff in the presidential villa.
“I know Andy was a masseur in the US. He was a domestic staff in the villa, who cleans the president’s shoes,” he said.
“If throwing up my name gives Andy Uba a CV, then I will concede that too”, Soludo added.
